2015 Update: Quinten Pounds

Cypress (Ca.) ATH Quinten Pounds is excited. He's less than two weeks away from signing his letter-of-intent to play his college football at the University of Washington and he said he's excited to see what lies ahead...

"It's been really good so far," Pounds said when asked how the offseason is coming along. " I've been working out a lot and running and all of that stuff. It's been good."

Pounds said he's put on about 10 pounds since his season finished up and he's hoping to add a few more before he shows up.

"I talk to the coaches all the time and they are just encouraging me to stay in shape, do the work, but also to enjoy myself and get ready to come in and compete," Pounds said.

As far as where the versatile prospect will start his Husky, Pounds said he's still undecided.

"The coaches basically told me it was my choice, either receiver or defensive back, but I am not sure yet," Pounds said. "I am in a couple of all-star games in the next couple of weeks. I am going to be playing both ways and I will see how I do and probably decide on where I will play off of how I do."

Pounds made a name for himself as a defensive back and that's where Washington was initially looking to play him, but after seeing that he had chance to play with a record-setting quarterback like Jake Browning, he started to reconsider his preferred side of the ball.

"I've gotten to know Jake Browning really well and with him throwing the ball around all over the place, I'm really thinking I'd like to start out at receiver first," Pounds admitted. "Honestly, I don't think I could go wrong wherever I choose. I love to play both and I just want to help the team any way that I can."

Pounds said he hopes to make it up to Washington in April to check out his future digs and to see the Huskies take part in spring practices, but he's unsure of when exactly that trip may happen.
